School's back in session and with Mesa County experiencing a low unemployment rate that means it's time for many employers to hang up the help wanted sign.

Mesa County's Unemployment Rate is at 4.0% and experts say it's on a steady decline. The current market is being described by many as a job seekers market. But with all the growth here in the valley and teenager workforce returning to school, some employers are finding themselves understaffed while others find they need less staff during the winter months.

Colorado's Unemployment Rate snuck up slightly last month to 4.8%.
State Economists say that despite the increase there was solid job growth.
